Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Caramel Popcorn Day

Caramel corn was first introduced in the 1870s. Before this, sweet popcorn was a hugely popular snack years prior to caramel corn’s creation. Kettle corn, which is cooked in oil with sugar and salt, was enjoyed by many for special occasions, such as holidays and fairs.

Caramel popcorn came to be due to two brothers, Frederick and Louis Rueckheim, who immigrated to the United States of America from Germany and settled in Chicago. In 1870, they opened a popcorn store and began experimenting with unique flavors and toppings. One of these experiments produced a new concoction which was a mix of popcorn, peanuts, and molasses.
